Negasonic Teenage Warhead

History

You don’t talk much about your past. I mean, what would be the point? It seems like everyone has a sob story these days, and yours is no different. How do you think it goes when you first manifest powers that literally blow everything up? Not good. Really not good. Bye childhood house. Bye-bye parents who can look at you without fear in their eyes.

Lucky for you, there’s Xavier’s. After blowing up the house, you end up unconscious in the hospital. And that’s where they find you. By the time you wake up, it’s all been decided. Mommy and daddy think it’s the best thing for you. Or maybe they’re just afraid of you now. You can’t really blame them for that, but it still sucks.

But the school is… surprisingly okay. Overwhelmingly cheery at times, but at least they aren’t afraid of you here. You get a big cornball for a mentor, give him a hard time, but he doesn’t give up. He teaches you control — to control your powers, your temper, your attitude. After a bit, you gotta give him respect. He’s got your back, and you’ll have his.

You’re not going for Student of the Year or anything, but you work at it, you really do. You find some courses you actually like — math and engineering? Hella weird but okay! And you double down on the training. It must impress someone, because you’re tagged at 15 to join the X-Men. You aren’t going to jump up and down with joy or anything, but a chance to take these powers and turn them into something good? Well… You say you have to think about it, but truth is, you decided before they even finished asking the question.

You suit up (oh my god, these uniforms are awful) and start your real training. Hang back on missions, they tell you, but of course, you just keep leaping right into the fray. You’re pretty sure they only made you a full member because they ran out of other ideas, but whatever. You’re an X-Man now. Not top-tier. Not front-line. More like… ‘get left to guard the mansion while everyone else is out doing superhero stuff’.

Nice thing is, eventually that superhero stuff comes calling for you anyway. Which is how you get mixed up with Deadpool and his X-Force stuff. You help him save the world a couple of times, and you’re pretty sure he owes you for life. Definitely should not have given him that time control device though. You’re pretty sure you’re going to regret that.

Personality

Take your stereotypical ‘troubled teen’ personality, dial it up to 11, and you’ve got Negasonic. Except that would be lazy writing, and we’d never accuse the writers of that, right DP?

See, the real truth about Neg is that she really could not care less what anyone thinks of her. And she more or less truly means that. Even when someone gets the better of her, there’s a good chance she’ll just shrug and say ‘whatever’ and move on with her life. It’s not going to keep her up at night. The stereotypical teen thing, though, is useful for keeping people at a distance and maintaining lowered expectations.

Beneath the deadpan snark, Neg’s got a big heart and a generous soul, but she’d roll her eyes if you tried to point that out. She’s also kind of a good person? She didn’t sign up to be an X-Man for the matching uniform, after all. She might try to claim she just did it for shits and giggles, but fact is, she’s got a strong moral code, and nothing will make her go against it. She’s not going to superhero-leap onto the scene, hands on hips, declaring that ‘criminals must pay!’ But in her own quiet, sullen way, she’s going to blast right into the fray and do what she thinks is right.

That said, there aren’t many people she really cares about. Her respect does not come easy. Once you earn it though, she will be your fiercest ally, even if she’ll never mention it aloud. There will be no friendship bracelets, but if your ass is on the line, she’ll risk life and limb, no matter what.

Character Sheet

Self-Detonation

At the root of it, Negasonic’s power is to harness energy within herself and then release it with explosive outward force. Through training, she’s learned to use this explosive force in a number of ways, outlined in the following sections. She can also control the force and (to a lesser extent) the direction of the blast.

Negasonic’s power is not instant. Depending on the degree of force, it takes her a window of time to summon up the energy within her. During this period, her body will be outlined in flaming orange rings and her eyes will glow orange. While charging for a large blast, she generates enough heat to melt nearby objects if she comes in contact with them.

Using her power also drains her, and the stronger the blast, the more exhausting it is and the sooner she will tire. Using her power to the fullest of her ability will knock her unconscious (see ‘The Big Bang’ section for more details)

Explosive Leap

A simple trick, but a flashy one. By directing her blast downwards, Negasonic can launch herself high into the air. She can use this to leap straight up, or to leap forwards and cover quite a bit of distance in a single bound. By exploding on touchdown, she can make herself into something of a missile.

Similarly, she can also use her blast to send someone else flying, although this requires an object to launch them from. For instance, if someone were on a table and she were beneath, she could direct her blast to the bottom of the table, sending it launching upwards and sending the other person flying as well. Where that person lands, though, is sort of up to them at that point.

Forcefield

Negasonic can also use her outward blast to counter incoming attacks by creating a momentary forcefield. This power is quicker to conjure up versus her outward explosions, and allows her to react almost instantly. However, it lasts only for the blink of an eye — enough to fend off something flying her way, but not a shield that she can maintain against an ongoing assault; although she can call up forcefield after forcefield, there will always be brief moments between them, when an attack can get through.

Augmented Combat

By combining her blasts with her training in hand-to-hand combat, Negasonic can literally pack quite a punch: namely, she can imbue her blows with the concussive force of her blasts, so that punches and kicks are far more damaging to foes. She also likes to use a charging attack, where she will run at her foes and use her blast to smash into them with a great deal of force, usually sending them flying backwards.

The Big Bang

Negasonic can harness all of her energy into one single, massive explosion, capable of levelling half a city block. This requires at least a full 30-seconds of uninterrupted build up, and once she blows, she will be unconscious for at least an hour, with her powers needing a few more hours beyond that to fully return. She also has almost zero control over the blast’s direction or target, so this is literally a last resort for her.

Miscellaneous

Which benefits? The matching unitards? The house that blows up every few years?

Hey, Douche-Pool!

Deadpool : LOOK! I'm a teenage girl, I'd rather be anywhere than here! I'm all about long sullen silences, followed by mean comments, followed by more silence! So what's it gonna be: long sullen silence or mean comment? Go on, take your pick.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead : …You got me in a box here.
Deadpool : AH-HAA!
